Guest Comments:
'We've stayed in this house twice now and I am already looking forward to planning my next stay! I love this house. It's in the perfect location for the high street but in a quiet street. The effort put into presenting the house is excellent and I always leave feeling sad because it is so well done. The bed is comfortable importantly. Everything is always perfect!' R Benson

Stayed at Barnacle Drift for a New Years Eve by the sea. A wonderful cottage which felt like home, all the amenities we needed and a lovely wood burner for a very special time. A walk along the beach for lunch at The Sportsman was the perfect New Years Day antidote, highly recommended. Thank you we will be back again. Max

We had a lovely weekend at Barnacle Drift.  The cottage was a perfect size for our group of 5 (3 adults and 2 children) with comfortable beds for all! The wood burning stove was lovely in the evening and the cottage was cosy throughout our whole stay.  Location is perfect for both the lovely town and beach - we would definitely stay again! Emma
